What does it mean to be the only curated clean-crafted wine club? For Sarah Shadonix, founder of Scout & Cellar, it means no wine headaches. Sarah was studying to become a sommelier and started developing headaches. She went to a variety of doctors and they could find no reason for them. One night she shared a bottle of wine with friends and didn’t have a headache. As she did more research, she realized that the way wine is made may contribute to headaches.
For a wine to be considered clean-crafted, it must satisfy the following guidelines:
Chemicals, pesticides and added sugars have allowed wine producers to get around the natural unpredictability and promote wine that tastes the same, bottle after bottle, year after year. This also made it possible to hide flaws that may exist in those bottles, like bacteria and other unpleasant elements. Unfortunately, wineries rely on pesticides, additives and added sweeteners, which means chemically altered, completely unnatural wine is now the norm. Scout & Cellar is here to offer a cleaner, healthier, altogether better wine experience to everyone.
No headaches, no purple teeth stained by an additive called by Mega Purple, no added sugar – sounds pretty good to me. Check out the range of clean-crafted wine available from Scout & Cellar here.
